Lead Student

My son's school has a set of core values that every child is expected to follow and emulate. Each week, one student is chosen as "lead student". This means they emulate the core values to an exceptional degree and are recognized for their leadership abilities. My son was lead student for the past week! Today at chapel, he traded in the medallion that the kids get to wear all week (as recognition for lead student) for a pin that he will get to wear on his chapel jacket lapel! I am so proud of him! He has become such a mature young man this school year, in addition to having an unbelievable growth spurt! I keep telling my friends he must want something really really big for Christmas, but I couldn't be happier with my kids! I am a single parent and as many of you know, it's very hard to do all you have to do and make sure your kids are on the right track all on your own. I have some pretty amazing kids!


Congratulations! What a great kid and what a great thing that he could make his Mom proud!
That is WONDERFUL! How exciting for him! And what a great kid :) You must be one heck of a mom to raise a kid like that! Congratulations to both of you :)

What a handsome boy he is! I am so happy you shared this. It is so tough to be the parent of a teen and this goes to prove that you are doing all the right things. Congratulations on this marvelous accomplishment. Enjoy the day! Erin

Congratulations to both you and your son! It's nice to have recognition for leadership abilities. (and recognition for doing a good job with the especially hard task of being a single parent.)

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes. I've been giving my wrist a break because of perceived carpal tunnel, so I've been doing a lot in polymer, and by a lot, I mean when I have a few half hours of time! Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
